After the disgust that caused the two teams, the fans and practically all South American football, Carlos Tevez said that the Conmebol “are three crazy behind a desk”, before the Copa Libertadores final in which Boca Juniors and River Plate will face each other on Sunday at the Santiago Bernabeu.
“They are crazy people, as my great friend Daniel Osvaldo said, they are three crazy people behind a desk, they do not understand anything,” said Tevez, after Boca’s practice in Madrid, an unprecedented stage for the Argentine Superclasico .
“Only when all this came out, that we were going to play in Madrid, or in Doha, or any place around the world, I do not know where else we were going to play, what madness, did not it? We got the illusion, the ones from River to turn around on their court and us from give it on their court, “added Tevez.
The Conmebol decided that the final would move from Buenos Aires to Madrid after the attack on Boca bus when it arrived at the Estadio Monumental for the final that should have been played on 24th November, a 2-2 rematch of the first leg at the La Bombonera.
“It’s weird, it’s weird trying to focus on a final like this. We’ve been tortured for around for days and now they are trying to make this end peaceful. Playing it in Madrid is the approach that one has to find, “continued Tevez.
“It is important that those who manage the group try to make the rest understand that it is a final, that we play the Copa Libertadores, and not a summer game. It is important to understand that message,” added the former Juventus and Manchester United footballer.
Asked if River’s chances had been damaged, Tevez said, “I don’t think so. River have a lot more pressure playing at home and now it is 50-50. To play at home, sometimes it goes against you in a Libertadores final.”
